Dr Samantha Brown
Sam studied to be a veterinarian at Bristol University in England and graduated in 2010. She started her vet career in Australia and has been here ever since. Her love for Australia has yet to fade and it was in the small town of Cootamundra where her Aussie adventures started. She worked with cattle, horses and small animals for the first 3 years of her career and since then has focused on her passion of small animal medicine and surgery. Sam has been lucky enough to combine work with travel, working in South Australia, Darwin and Byron Bay before settling in Melbourne.
Sam joined the Greencross team in 2017 and loves being part of such a caring team, who are passionate about the happiness and well-being of all their furry patients.
Sally started off working at a doggy day-care centre when she was just 18 years old, which cemented her passion to with animals throughout her life.
10 years later and her dream of entering into the world of veterinary nursing has become a reality. Still studying, Sally will be a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse in November 2018. When she is not nursing, Sally likes to spend time with her son and their adoption kitten “Donatello”, and enjoys countless trips to the farm and other nature related places. She hopes to live on her own farm one day with an abundance of fur & feathered friends.
Amanda has recently qualified as a Veterinary Nurse. She has had the chance to be involved in designing and overseeing the construction of the new cattery which is now up and running and is so happy to be working with such a passionate and inspiring group of women every day. This year has been a very exciting one for Amanda as along with all of the new challenges at work, she has also seen her little family grow. Gator, her naughty torti now has a big brother, Bruce, the even naughtier Rottweiler Cross. While Gator & Bruce were a little unsure of each other at the beginning, they are now lounging on the couch together with the occasional nose kiss!
When I graduated from high school I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, a wise person (thanks mum!) told me to think of something that I’m passionate about and go from there. So that’s what I did, I annoyed all the local vet clinics until I finally got a job as a kennel hand where I assisted the veterinary staff and got a first hand impression into what a career as a veterinary nurse looked like. Safe to say I loved it because 10 years later and here I am, unable to imagine doing anything else!
When asked if I’m a cat or a dog person I have to answer BOTH. I simply can’t choose as they are each so wonderful in different ways. I have 2 cats of my own; Jimmy (Type A personality) and Peppa (Introvert) whom I love dearly.
